In the Presence of Myself

The desire to fit into social norms of body image takes a physical and emotional toll. Body shaming yourself day after day. Fixating and battling with your self proclaimed imperfections. Creating an obsession around it and slowly disembodying who you are to just pieces of disgust. “In the Presence of Myself” is a performance art piece that explores and highlights the self consciousness of what it means to carry these emotions. Slowing exploring and understanding the body. Sometimes hiding behind this outer self.
